It is easy to praise the LORD when things are going well. Tonight at our dinner devotions, we read,
"I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth." Ps 34:1.
This is quite a challenge, to say as David did, that His praise shall continually be in our mouths. This is fairly uncomplicated when we are overjoyed (as our family is at the moment with this new life) and much more trying in difficult times.
The thing is, if we practice to be continually in praise each day, throughout all circumstances, there will be much less room in our mouths for complaint and discontent. After all, our mouths can only utter so much at one time.
May we all practice using our mouths more and more for praise "at all times, continually", and less and less for anything else, today and every day. Love Michelle
